  • Map of the Faroe Islands with:
  • Cities and villages (yellow fields, including cultivated area). Places with a black dot are abandoned (e.g. Skarð on Kunoy)
  • Streets between the places (red lines, if dotted, it's a tunnel. Note, that the tunnel between Eysturoy and Borðoy opens in August 2006)
  • Some major mountains (black triangles with height in metres)
  • Ferry harbours (anchor). Note, that the Faroes have many more harbours (almost at each village at the coast). To see the ferry lines, please check the current map here:
  • Major firths and straits (blue). Note, that a fjørður in Faroese is not only a firth (fjord) but can also be a strait.
  • Major lakes are captioned
  • What is missing on this map: Municipality borders, churches, lighthouses, heliports, hospitals, post offices, hotels and camping sites, as well as height lines, but the scale of the map doesn't allow this (IMHO).
  • Used sources: , , "Turen går til Færøerne" (Politikens Forlag, Copenhagen, 2005), "Føroyar - topografisk kort 1:100.000" (2 parts, Geodætisk Institut, Copenhagen, ca. 1985).
